Iain Gray - Leader of Labour in the Scottish Parliament?


First off, congratulations to Iain Gray MSP for his victory in the contest to succeed Wendy Alexander as Leader of Labour in the Scottish Parliament. I am sure his victory will please not only those in the Labour party but those in others too - I think his victory speech has shown that.


However, in that same speech, Iain Gray signalled his intention to have a "wider mandate" than his title as leader of.... well, you know by now. Fairly swiftly, Westminster Labour's man in the Scottish Parliament was
rebuffed by part-time Secretary of State for Scotland Des Browne.

Seems that mandate doesn't really include much change after all...
